Ming's Out There Somewhere!
I always prefer to watch serials as they were made, episode by episode, but I watched this one a few years ago so I decided to check out this movie. It's not a compilation, but a seamless movie made from the first half or so of the serial. The film makers did more than just edit out the cliffhangers. At the end, after our heroes have stopped the threat of the purple death and are safely aboard a ship, a narrator explains that they return to Earth.
I downloaded the MPEG2 file. It's really a VOB file. I changed the extension to mpeg2, but it wasn't necessary. It played fine using VLC. The video and audio quality are fine.
